Samsung wins over AMD and Google through higher 4nm process yield

Samsung made strides to be in a position wherein it can secure major semiconductor clients. The company has reportedly improved its 4nm yield to the point where it almost matches the yield of its 5nm process, which led to a couple of big fabless companies entering new partnerships with the Korean tech giant.

Samsung revealed that it improved the yield of its 4nm chip manufacturing process to a level close to its 5nm production capabilities. A higher yield means a higher ratio of usable chips to the maximum chip count on one wafer. And industry insiders cited by Pulse News say that Samsung's 4nm yield is similar to that of TSMC.

Winning over AMD and Google

Thanks to these massive yield improvements in 4nm chip manufacturing, Samsung could convince two big clients to choose its foundry over its rival's. Those clients are AMD and Google, whose Tensor 3 chip that will be used inside the Google Pixel 8 will be made by Samsung on its third-generation 4nm process node.

After a rough start with its 4nm process a couple of years ago, Samsung is now doing all it can to improve its manufacturing and win over more clients. As part of this plan, the company decided against using an Exynos chipset for the Galaxy S23 series this year but will supposedly use a brand-new Exynos 2400 SoC for the Galaxy S24 series next year.

The Exynos 2400 is said to be manufactured on the latest 4nm production node, and Samsung may want to use it as a platform to promote its chip manufacturing prowess and regained capabilities. Which means it could be far superior to the Exynos 2200 that was built on an earlier 4nm node. Meanwhile, a possibly improved version of the Exynos 2200 could be used by the unannounced Galaxy S23 FE later this year or early next year.
